Description

I propose and have implemented adding functionality to the Network Control telnet interface to allow a remote control developer (me for instance) to put up a table of what programs are now available to the LiveTV mode. This would involve adding 3 queries:

query liveTV - List current TV schedule query liveTV CHANID - Query current program for specified channel query time - Query current time on server

query liveTV returns a list of programs of the form: chanid starttime endtime title # query liveTV 2206 2007-09-23T07:30:00 2007-09-23T08:30:00 College Football Final 2292 2007-09-23T08:00:00 2007-09-23T08:30:00 NASCAR Racers -"All or Nothing" 2265 2007-09-23T08:00:00 2007-09-23T09:00:00 Biography -"Meatloaf"

query liveTV CHANID returns a single program for the specified channel of the form: chanid starttime endtime title # query liveTV 2249 2249 2007-09-23T08:00:00 2007-09-23T08:30:00 MAD TV

query liveTV returns the current time on the server to allow the remote control to accurately know when to refresh its listing:

# query time 2007-09-23T08:30:04

(In [15396]) Add "query liveTV", "query liveTV CHANID", and "query time" commands to the NetworkControl? interface in mythfrontend. The "query liveTV" commands return a list of what programs are currently airing. The "query time" command returns the current time on the frontend in ISODate format.
